Concern about the cost of a solicitor in Newark and Sherwood could be one of the biggest worries which prevents you from making a personal injury claim. If you come and talk to us, though, we’ll show you how you can build the best case possible.
About the cost of a solicitor in Newark and Sherwood
The way in which we pay for personal injury claims has changed considerably over the past few years. For example, in the past it was possible to get legal aid to help pay for your legal fees. This had an important role in making it safer and less expensive to make a personal injury claim.
However, legal aid was removed from personal injury claims at the end of the 90s. This left many people worrying about whether or not they would be able to afford to make a personal injury claim. However, we can make this all a little easier by working on the basis of no win no fee*. If you don’t win you won’t have to pay legal fees.
About no win no fee*
The benefit of no win no fee* is that it removes the biggest risks you take when claiming compensation. You will only have to pay if you win your case. When that happens you will pay from a portion of your compensation agreement. This varies according to different providers but should not be any more than 25% of your compensation arrangement.
This obviously reduces the risks you take when claiming compensation. Because you only pay if you win, you will now not be forced into financial difficulty because of a lost case. However, there are still many things you should be careful of.
First of all there are some expenses which may not count as part of a no win no fee* agreement. These could be things such as medical expenses and so on which are not covered in quite the same way.
You should also check how much a certain law firm charges. Just because it’s no win no fee* doesn’t mean you can forget about the fees altogether. Some firms will obviously charge more than others. So check how much yours is going to charge before you agree to use them.
At Accident Advice Helpline all our work is done on a no win no fee* basis. We feel this is the best way to ensure everything happens with your best interests at heart. We will also always be clear and upfront about our payment structure. You’ll know how much you will have to pay and at what time.
